Adult Literacy Program

Project New Yorker’s Adult Literacy Programs are designed to educate and empower adult learners through accessible programming. We believe that by increasing access to services, to knowledge and community networks we can uplift our communities. With our programs we try to focus on equipping students with necessary skills to achieve self-sufficiency. So that they can overcome barriers towards accessing education, employment, healthcare and more.

English as a Second Language (ESL)

Effective communication is important for immigrants and non-native English speakers. For helping individuals to gain basic and intermediate English language skills we designed our course.

We understand that learning a new language can be challenging, especially for adults. For that our classes are designed to make the learning process engaging, supportive, and effective.

You will find different levels of ESL classes for students from beginner to intermediate. In addition to these classes, we offer conversational classes in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA). Our experienced instructors are passionate about helping you overcome language barriers and build your English proficiency, whether you’re a newcomer or someone who wants to refine your existing skills.
